Whisky News  

We have had some exciting movement in the Distillery over the last few weeks. Part of our brand-new whisky set-up was installed in the Distillery...

After six years of production, The Orkney Distillery is well known for the distillation of exceptional gin. However, gin was never the long-term aim and the pandemic delayed everything by two years. Single Malt Whisky production was always planned and indeed designed into the distillery building. 

As such, we are very close to distilling our single malt scotch whisky and rum.


Spring has Sprung in Orkney  

Like many places, Spring feels like a new beginning in Orkney, but there is something special about Spring in a northerly island of Scotland. We begin to get longer days, and there is a real sense of fresh energy across Orkney as spring arrives.

 Spring is such an important time at the distillery, as we open again for visitors, and our gin botanicals are starting to grow!
